Treasure the lasting and meaningful connections made as a family serving in Christ centered disaster relief together

Experts say that Hurricane Ian was the strongest storm on record to ever hit southwest Florida. On September 28, Floridians braced for impact as the Category 4 storm roared ashore with 155 mph winds. The storm has caused flooding along the coast, home damages, uprooted and scattered trees and debris, and many other damages to the area. 
Adventures in Missions has created a disaster relief base in the community of Harlem Heights within Fort Myers. Here we look to meet the needs of this community primarily through the rebuilding of homes. 
 

Join us on a mission to help rebuild the lives and homes of those affected by Hurricane Ian.  The shared experience of coming together to serve God strengthens relationships and deepens family members love for one another while also helping them grow closer to God.  Families will experience Bible study, prayer, service projects, new people and new places which is a great way for children to learn about the world and gain a deeper understanding of their faith. 


Ministry

Opportunities may include:

  • Cleanup/Construction: Harlem Heights and surrounding areas are still in various stages of recovery after Hurricane Ian. Groups can anticipate working in homes doing drywall, mudding and taping, laminate floor installation, installing kitchen cabinets and painting. Other scopes of work are dependent on the skill level of the group. Additionally, teams often help raise morale by keeping the neighborhood looking good – yard crews will minister to homeowners by mowing lawns, picking up garbage and helping clear debris.

  • Food Pantry Ministry: Adventures In Missions has partnered with the Harry Chapin Food Bank and the Gladiolus Food Pantry. Participants have the opportunity to assemble food kits as well as distribute goods to families in need.

  • Prayer Ministry: You and your team may have the opportunity to hear people’s stories and offer prayer. This was a traumatizing event, and some people are just looking for somebody to listen to.

 

Come with a servant's heart and a willingness to do whatever is needed. Each day may look different and things might change day-to-day depending on the need.
